One of the biggest traditional rivalries in college football is Notre Dame-USC. These two storied programs will meet Saturday night in Los Angeles.

Notre Dame enters Saturday's game with everything on the line. The Fighting Irish are 11-0 and looking for their second undefeated regular season of the Brian Kelly era.

A win will likely lock up a College Football Playoff berth for Notre Dame. Facing a similar situation in 2012, the Fighting Irish beat USC in the regular season finale to move to 12-0 and secure a spot in the BCS National Championship Game.

The Trojans, meanwhile, enter this game with a 5-6 record and whispers that their head coach is on borrowed time. USC needs an upset here in order to salvage a .500 season and make a bowl game.

The latest OddsShark prediction for the game certainly reflects the different states of the two programs.
